Usually I file and clip
and hear the choppy
snip snip snip…
but now they’ve grown
and I can’t stop staring
’cause it looks like press-on nails
I have let my nails grow and they are reaching enormous lengths! It’s not something I normally do, because when I play piano they break easily…but I have been blessed with a few weeks off from ministry (it’s called a sabbatical) and I am grateful for the time of renewal and rest. I am also completely amazed at how fast my nails have grown over these 2 weeks!
I’m sure they grow fast all the time- it’s just that I normally don’t notice it because I keep my nails filed down. I always say it’s a good Sunday when I am leading worship and I break a nail playing piano! I give my all every Sunday morning for Jesus- and it brings me great joy to lead worship.
But this time away has been good. I’ve been able to reflect on my spiritual growth, and as trivial as it may sound- I’ve also enjoyed having long nails for a couple of weeks 🙂
I have been the worship pastor at my church for over 10 years now. Years ago, when I would miss a Sunday- I couldn’t stop thinking about church and wondering what I had missed! What if this happened, or this didn’t get done… would people miss me being there? So many what if’s, it exhausts me just typing them out! But now, I have learned that He always makes everything come together.
And time away is a very good thing.
When we stop, everything somehow keeps on going 🙂
I can’t wait for that first Sunday back- it’s going to be a “nail breaker” for sure!
